    The 20-year-old right-hander came out of the gates quickly with 258 and 243. He suffered his lone sub-par game of 191 in the third but rebounded with 201, 278, 212 and 214 to lead the field of 86 bowlers from 86 countries with 1855 total.

Ildemaro Ruiz Jr. (left) of Venezuela also had a high game of 289 in his 1798 series to sit in third place.

    Representing the host country United States, 17-year-old World Youth champion Kamron Doyle (pictured right with Team USA head coach, Rod Ross) had high games of 289, 266, 245 and 236 on his way to a 1786 series, good for fourth place overall.

    David Maycock (below left) of Bermuda had a pair of 250s in games six and seven to land in seventh place with 1746.

    Rounding out the top 8, who will make it to match play after 32 games, was Mark McQueen (below right) of Scotland, who chalked up 1734 pins, an average of 216.75.

    2015BWCDavidMaycock.jpg2015BWCMarkMcQueen.jpgWith eight of 24 qualifying games in the books, Benjamin Martinez of Mexico and Zoe Dias Ma of Macau were tied for the 24th and last place to advance at 1620 or an average of 202.50.

    While in the event of a tie during games 1-32, the player with the highest last game will take the higher position, a tie for 24th place and for eighth place (in the Round of 24) will be broken by a one-game roll-off.
